Clare Forsyth

I’m a BACP registered Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with a core model of Transactional Analysis. I’ll listen to what you tell me about your situation and using an empathic approach I’ll work with you drawing from a variety of theoretical models to tailor your therapy to what you are looking for.

I work with a wide variety of clients bringing many different issues including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, bereavement and loss, abuse, trauma, and suicidal thoughts. In addition, I’m experienced providing therapy for adults with issues including parenthood, twins, men’s issues, domestic violence (both male and female), historic childhood emotional and sexual abuse and sibling estrangement.
I also have direct experience working with neurodivergence – Autism, ADHD and also military veterans.

Often it can be that current issues are set in the frame of what’s gone before, and so taking time to look back at your early life experiences can really help to understand more clearly where difficulties and patterns have come from and why.
You’re the expert on yourself, and this is key as we develop a relationship. I’ll be alongside you as we work together to establish what you need, and I’ll support you as you move through your counselling journey.

Central to my work is feeling safe, feeling heard and seen, honesty and being valued. Throughout the time we spend there will be a myriad of feelings and emotions, we may laugh or cry, we may be quiet or use the space to offload and process. Most of all I’ll accept you as you are with whatever you bring and however it comes. It’s always a privilege to work with clients and share precious thoughts and feelings.

I hold a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Northern Guild of Psychotherapy as well as a MA in Oriental Studies- Arabic from Oxford University. I work in private practice as well as for Community Counselling Ltd with victims of serious crime.
